First published in the 1980s and now thoroughly revised and brought completely up to date, Godfrey Howard’s Guide takes a cool objective look at the standard dos and don’ts of grammar and vocabulary, relating them to the English used by some of the best writers, speakers and broadcasters today. Difficulties over grammar and pronunciation are explained simply and clearly, and there is open advice about four-letter words, racist words and other aspects of English that are usually glossed over. This authoritative reference book, written in a warm person-to-person style with a marvelous collection of examples, quotations and illustrations, will give the reader valuable new insights into the English language.
